An Exciting Week Wraps Up

* New sewing machine arrives to replace the clunker I've used nearly every day for five year. Isn't it amazing what a hundred bucks will buy ?~! I bought the same model as the old one so all the accessories like bobbins and presser feet will fit. It's a Singer 2277. Simple, straightforward, easy to use... So Quiet !~!

* Successful Lemonade Stand with the Littles. A month-long project comes to fruition Thursday afternoon and is a rousing success.

* Fruit trees producing like crazy: cherries, blueberries, strawberries, tomatoes, apples, grapes, lemons.

* Ornamentals: sunflowers, roses, calendula, poppies, rhododendron, hydrangea, miniature roses, wildflowers round the base of the Australian Boxwood, finally new leaves on the Weeping Copper Beech, field irises, night-blooming jasmine, aloe bloomed for the first time ever in thirteen years, jade tree drops pieces and they take root, Red Maple stuns everyone who walks past it, cedar tree stretches for sky-I think she thinks she's sequoia !~!

May is a great month-new growth everywhere and summer rushing in.
